Members of Utah's African American community meet to discuss community issues

OHD is sponsoring a community-based effort among U.S. born African Americans in Utah to gather and discuss ways to address needs within the community.

A group of 19 community members met on June 13 to determine whether a community-based participatory approach would be possible and sustainable. The group is discussing ways to gather the community to address health and other related issues, connect with others in the community, gather resources and identify strengths to address common concerns.

The group hopes to identify three priorities areas of focus. A listserve of contacts will be developed in an effort to share resources and let community members know of relevant community events and services.
